    This is for all the English people that live here and love their sweets.

    I am a very happy person :D at the moment. I went to my local "OXOX" store to buy a bottle of diet coke and while I was there. I thought I would be bad and treat myself to a candy bar.
    As I was looking. I saw something that caught my eye. I could not believe it. It was a "Crunchie Bar" importated from England. It was only 11 pesos.
    Tasted great.
    I think I will go back tomorrow and buy a few to put in the freezer, just incase (like everything here) they don't reorder .

    According to my resident East Ender, these are not the Crunchies she remembers before Cadbury took over Fry's.

    These are the old Crunchies: [​IMG]

    And these are what she got at Oxxo:[​IMG]
    except that the Oxxo packet was red.

    Are these the same you bought?

    The "crunchies" I bought are the same as the old ones in the first picture.
    and taste just as good as I remember.

    The good old Cancun shopping syndrome. You would think that if one Oxxo has them, all Oxxo's have them. Reality check time: No. You're in Cancun. Which Oxxo did you find them at? I'm sure I'm going to be sent out on a mission.

    My OXOX is the one opposite "Cable Mas". I am going there in a few. I will let you know if they still have some.

    Just came back from the store. I bought the last 6 that they had. They did say that they will get more in. I will keep you posted if that happens.

    Don't tell Saphire she'll probably go and buy them all there as well! :(

    "Hey I've found crunchie bars that you might like", "There at the oxxo by me" and...."I bought them all"

    I think I'd have prefered to have been in the dark that had the carrot dangled in front of my nose! :lol: :lol:

    They have them at the OXXO on the corner of Yaxchillan and Xpuhil near Costco, I had one today. The wrapper was slightly more yellow than the orange I remember it but they could have had a makeover in the UK anyway.

    Definitely the same product inside though. Just get there before Sapphire does!
